Students in Finance 300 stand outside the offices of Deloitte Consulting in San Francisco.

The word "intensive" has taken on new meaning for a group of highly motivated CMC students who were enrolled this month in FIN 300: Seminar in Applied Finance, a course in the Masters Program in Finance at CMC.

The three-week course (which ended August 30) offered through CMC’s Robert Day School of Economics and Finance, differs from other classes in that it includes a team-building retreat in Big Bear and a networking trip to the Bay area.

Poetry Feature

Poetry, for August Kleinzahler, belongs to “the realm of fire,” and this fall the critically-acclaimed poet and essayist brings his elemental vision of modern poetics to Claremont McKenna College with two courses on the cultural and historical forces that have shaped the arts, poetry and prose in particular, over the last 150 years. The courses are open to all students of The Claremont Colleges.
